Thomas Scott Layman Office


Over 21 years experience in advertising, branding, video production, graphic design, and website development.

As a lifelong artist, Thomas “Scott” Layman became professionally involved in art, graphic design, and video production at a young age. His mother has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and his father, Tom Layman, worked as a Senior Art Director for the Martin Agency for well over 30 years.

Scott's first paying gig was in 1998 producing a documentary and educational video of the Roanoke River Basin and the issues they were having with water resources. He was later hired as a video editor, videographer, and website developer with McArthur Communications in Richmond. His projects included the U.S Navy, The Virginia War Memorial, Greentop Hunting and Fishing, HHHunt Homes, Lifestyle Homes, and many Central Virginia businesses.

I'm proud to have worked on a multitude of complex projects while helping numerous organizations solve their visual, technical and business challenges. ~ Scott
